About the Doodle Letters:
Every few months, I write a email/letter in doodle/comic strip format to my family, friends, and people whom I’ve been lucky enough to cross paths with. It’s partly a way to let the people I care about know what I’m up to, and partially a kick-in-the-bum to do a bit of self reflection. A close friend of mine shared this quotation a few years ago:
" To let friendship die away by negligence and silence is certainly not wise. It is voluntarily to throw away one of the greatest comforts of the weary pilgrimage"
- (Samuel Johnson).
A good reminder to keep the people we love in our lives. So here’s what I’ve been up to!
Past letters :
(Headings expand into full letters. The originals were emailed out, these are archives^_^)
(In which I run out of cool ideas for titles. But that's ok.)
MEMORY 1 – HENRIETTA THE HEDGEHOG
MEMORY 2: PANDA CUB STORY TIME, STOP-MOTION
MEMORY 3: GRAD SCHOOL, EDUCATION & CHILDREN’S LIT
Is there any real difference between DEC 31st and JAN 1st?
Why wait for the beginning of a New Year to make positive changes to my life?
Who actually sticks to their resolutions anyway?
*ps, there's a bonus image at the end of the letter!
How does one measure a life?
In which I get all gooey/mushy again, talk about my job search process, and thanked loves and lovers.
In which... well. What the title says. Fears faced and embraced in this letter. Hey, no matter what the future holds, right now it holds some pretty awesome stuff - not in the least you all.
In which I launch Beautiful Lives Project, turn 24, celebrate two New Years and fall in love all over again with my southern roots. Also. Cowboy boots.
A Year of Love and Growth. From China back to the US then to Wales with a detour to Paris. Wrapping up with a Christmas at home.
